Review&Giveaway: Unstoppable DVD by:Kirk Cameron


About the DVD:
Inspired by the death of Cameron’s close friend who succumbed to cancer at the age of 15, Kirk Cameron takes viewers on an inspiring and hope-filled visual journey to better understand the biggest doubt-raising question in faith: “Where is God in the midst of tragedy and suffering?”
Going back to the beginning—literally—Kirk investigates the origins of good and evil and how they impact our lives … and our eternities. UNSTOPPABLE will prompt audiences to consider the role that pain and suffering has in our lives, as they affirm their personal views on faith, and encourage conversation starters about God, suffering, and hope.
In theaters for only two weeknights (Sept 24th and Oct 3th, 2013), UNSTOPPABLE: A Live Event with Kirk Cameron sold a staggering 260,000 tickets and reached a theatrical gross of over $3.2 million dollars. In just two nights this independent project sent a loud message – audiences want thought-provoking and meaningful entertainment.

About the Author:
Kirk Cameron is best known for his memorable role as “Mike Seaver,” a cultural icon of the 80's, with his mullet hairstyle, cool glasses, and wisecracking comebacks. More recently he enjoyed much success with the No. 1 grossing inspirational film of 2008, Fireproof, and his recent documentary, Monumental. Kirk and his wife, Chelsea, were on-screen sweethearts during their Growing Pains years and are the founders of Camp Firefly, where terminally and seriously ill children and their families are provided an all-expense paid retreat (www.CampFirefly.com). Together, Kirk and Chelsea live in California with their six children.

My Review:
 Life's greatest mystery is God. It seems we know so much about Him yet not enough. Kirk Cameron attacks this head on with his recently released documentary type DVD, UnStoppable. He takes a recent death of a family's friend teenage son and tries to go all the way back to creation to answer the question of why God lets death and tragedies take place when with His mighty hand he could actually prevent such things.

 Kirk takes the whole idea and expands on it but I don't think he really ever comes up with a concrete answer. I believe that it is so complex and so beyond our realm of understanding that the we will never understand this side of heaven. I also believe that sometimes God has to allow such things to happen to glorify Him in some way. Whether it be ultimate healing or a tragedy such as earthquakes or fires, He may use these terrible things to make good out of them in some way, but I refuse to believe that He would cause them to happen.
